Even though the Aquatic Center is currently closed, we are still accepting registrations for Water Exercise and Lifeguard Training Courses as pool space is being utilized at different facilities.
The Department of Parks, Recreation and Culture operates the indoor pool located next to Gaithersburg Middle School for public use after school and on weekends. It is accessible to individuals with disabilities. The Aquatic Center consists of a six-lane, 25-yard main pool with a one-meter diving board as well as an adjacent shallow water "teach pool" area. Lockers and showers are available. Please leave valuables at home.
